Cape Breton Post - - OUR COMMUNITY -

SYD­NEY — Four Cape Bre­ton com­mu­ni­ties have been nom­i­nated for the Lieu­tenant Gov­er­nor’s Com­mu­nity Spirit Award.

Cheti­camp, Do­min­ion, St. Peter’s and the Uni­ver­sal Ne­gro Im­prove­ment As­so­ci­a­tion in Glace Bay are among the 13 com­mu­ni­ties nom­i­nated across the prov­ince.

The an­nual award pro­gram was launched in 2007 by Lt.-Gov. Mayann Fran­cis to rec­og­nize pro­vin­cial com­mu­ni­ties that demon­strate unique strengths and a high de­gree of pride and ci­ti­zen par­tic­i­pa­tion.

The com­mu­ni­ties will be re­viewed over the next six weeks. The se­lec­tion com­mit­tee may choose up to four com­mu­ni­ties in 2010.

Also nom­i­nated this year are Kentville, Mor­ris­town, Par­adise, Pic­tou County, Port­land Es­tates and Hills in Dart­mouth, Prospect com­mu­ni­ties, Sable River and Univer­site Sainte-Anne.

An of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment will be made in April.

In 2009 Brook­field, Shear­wa­ter, South Moun­tain Arm of Gold and St. An­drews were se­lected and cel­e­brated.
